The polls have closed. The votes have been counted and verified. Here at Summer Brader HQ, we follow a strict ethical process for counting votes, and so there will be no need for any official recounts. We have a winner for my annual photo contest! Each year, I open up my portfolio and hand-select my favorite photos from sessions last year. This year, I had so many favorites that I had to have professional input from my photographer friends to narrow it down! My clients are that fabulous. Once we narrowed down the options, I uploaded them to Facebook and challenged you with getting the most votes.
There were some clear frontrunners and some slow and steady gainers, and in the end, the winning photo belonged to…
Congratulations, Fowler family, for not only being stunningly beautiful but also highly resourceful in using your Facebook friends to vote on your picture!
This is the point in the competition where I am supposed to say, “you’re all winners,” but the fact of the matter is, the one who wins the most is me! As I was processing through these images, I was reminded of so many fun and beautiful sessions.
I could still hear the kids giggling, the couples laughing as I asked them to twirl and dance just a little bit more. Having the opportunity to work with so many fantastic, caring, and hardworking people in the Downers Grove area; I can’t help but feel like I somehow have gotten the best job.
Thank you so much, Fowler family, and everybody who was considered, for trusting me with your pictures during 2020. You all have continued to challenge and excite me as a photographer. I cannot wait to see you again in 2021!
